1. Fat Free: Fat Bike Freeriding on a Blizzard

    We have to admit, we were hesitant about the fat bike trend that's taking the bike industry by storm (pun intended). There were definitely a few raised eyebrows in the office when we started designing and testing one. Wade Simmons was an instant convert though; "everyone thinks they're so f@#&ing cool and serious, but it's really just about having fun on your bike anyway." And soon enough, the other guys stopped returning their test bikes on time. FAT FREE came out of a few days of experimenting and shredding the Blizzard in BC's coastal mountains. It opened all our eyes to the spectacular terrain that's available for fat biking, and it proved to us that the only limitations for these bikes are our own preconceived notions. If it was ever even a question, the answer is yes. You can and should freeride a fat bike. Riders: Geoff Gulevich, Wade Simmons, & Brett Tippie, with appearances by Andreas Hestler & Fraser Vaage.

      • Instinct in the Monashees

        http://bikes.com/instinct The plan was to head to the Monashee Mountains near Revelstoke, British Columbia with Wade Simmons and Kevin Calhoun to shoot an autumn alpine video for our new Instinct MSL. We wanted to showcase the bike’s versatility under two very different riders—Kevin is an XC racer on our Factory Team, while Wade’s contributions to freeride mountain biking need no introduction—. Of course sometimes Mother Nature doesn’t play nice, and an early cold snap provided on-and-off snowfall throughout our adventure. Despite the challenging weather, we knew we had an opportunity to capture a unique aspect of the changing seasons. From Kevin’s dawn patrol ascent to Wade charging snowy trail features, the rapidly changing conditions ended up being the perfect way to showcase the Instinct’s versatility. We’d like to thank the crew at the Sol Mountain Lodge for all their help with this project. Their lodge was a great base-camp and their trails were a blast even in the snow. We’ll be back again in warmer weather. Thanks for watching, Love the Ride!

                      Winter is reality. Here in Canada, you can pretty much guarantee that you'll freeze your ass off for 4-6 months of the year. Fortunately, that doesn't stop dedicated people from getting out and shredding. Most Canadians trade in their bike for skis or snowboards, but in Vancouver we are lucky enough to ride year round. Tippie, my long time buddy, has re-planted in North Vancouver coming originally from Kamloops. Knowing that he is a world-class snowboarder who would un-doubtedly miss the Kamloops winter, I told him not to worry as there is powder abound to be found locally. Admit-tingly not as consistent as say, Whistler, but good and deep none the less. Of course, as weather permits, we ride as much MTB as possible through the winter too. So, one glorious sunny mid-winter day this winter while DH'in on Cypress, Tippie and I came up with an idea...
